    No matter how many times you go to Disney there is always something new to be found. Cute lounge!

    Ahhh, the beautiful Poly! Too bad this is almost over! Will you be writing another TR for your upcoming trip?

    Most definitely! I love blogging about Disney too, but I really love the community of the DIS trip reports board. :goodvibes I'm already pondering what the new title should be! :scratchin

    Well. This is it. The last update of Downton Disney! It's a good thing I'm heading back to Florida in TWO WEEKS. :cool1::cool1: I don’t think I could take being TR-less for too long! ;) The new trippie is not up quite yet, but keep an eye out for it in the very near future. (I'll post a link on here too).

    But FIRST, I figured I'd finish this trippie up by packing as many Polynesian pics into the last post as possible. Sound like a plan? :thumbsup2

    [​IMG]

    When I last left off, I was having a wander around the longhouses, discovering some views I had never seen before. Like this one of the Volcano from across the marina...

    [​IMG]

    The Great Ceremonial House looked so pretty across the water from Tuvalu.

    [​IMG]

    Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh. Just look at all those palm trees. :goodvibes

    [​IMG]

    There’s Tonga! The lounge is on the left side of the building.

    [​IMG]

    Many of the outdoor staircases at the Poly have chairs for a smoking area. I kinda wish they just had the chairs and a place to sit, without the smoke!

    [​IMG]

    Looking down at the dock.

    [​IMG]

    I’m pretty sure this pic was my desktop background for awhile. :)

    [​IMG]

    Back through the Great Ceremonial House...

    [​IMG]

    I stopped in Boutiki just to see if there was any last thing I couldn’t resist…

    [​IMG] [​IMG]

    I do like the Polynesian designs they have, but I decided to wait. Once you’ve seen these Disney t-shirts on sale for $5 at Property Control, you never feel quite the same about paying $30 for them. :sad2:

    [​IMG]

    I headed back to Hawaii to tell the family about the new secret club lounge I had spotted. We were nearly packed up and ready to go. Sniff. I helped do another luggage-schlepping run to the car, then spent my last ten Polynesian minutes sitting by the windows in the lounge, gazing across the water towards the castle.

    [​IMG]

    Soaking in as much of the magic as possible to take along with me!

    Then the time had come. We made sure nothing was left in the room, said goodbye to the lounge and made our adieus to the Great Ceremonial House…

    [​IMG]

    Goodbye hidden mickey! See you next time!

    Then it was out to the parking lot, blew a kiss to those last palm trees, and into the car to embark on the drive home.

    Thank you guys so much for coming along on this trip report! Thanks especially to all those who have commented - reading your comments and stories makes my day. :thumbsup2

    Sending lots of pixie dust until the next snobby TR... pixiedust: pixiedust:pixiedust:

    Yours,

    Emma

    Wonderful TR. I really enjoyed reading along. I love all the Poly info. I can't wait for our stay in September to check out the secret club. Can't wait for your next one to start.

    What is Property Control? I want $5 shirts too!

    Thanks! I must check out your PTR, I'm getting excited about your Poly stay just hearing about it! :thumbsup2 There's nothing like the King Kamehamea Club! :goodvibes Property Control is a store for cast members - they have sunglasses for 25 cents (they're all the ones that have been sitting in lost and found for years!) and they also have t-shirts for $5. You never know what shirt you're going to find, because they're usually the defective/returned shirts that they can't sell to guests, but if you wait long enough you can find whatever design you're looking for! :thumbsup2

    Thank you!! :goodvibes I'm already excited to start the new TR, and super excited to get back to Disney. We're at 11 days...nearly single digits! :cool1:

    lol, that is such a sweet thing to say! :goodvibes Can't wait to see you over on the new TR! :)

    Awww, thank you for following around, I'm so glad you enjoyed it! That would be fun to see how they might do a Poly DVC...we might finally be convinced to join. :thumbsup2

    Thanks!! Sending best wishes for your trip as well!! :cool1:
